We produced this pastoral idyll by photocopying toile fabric. To re-create the effect, begin by painting a faux pumpkin with two coats of flat acrylic paint, in a shade that matches the background of your fabric; let dry. Meanwhile, photocopy the fabric in color, making enough copies to completely cover your Funkin and resizing the pattern if desired (we shrunk this one by 25 percent). Cut out individual scenes from the toile, leaving about a quarter inch of white space around each. Using our easy découpage technique, cover the entire Funkin.
Tie on country charm with this rustic fabric. Secure a strip of narrow burlap ribbon to the top of the shell using hot-glue, then run ribbon along the side of the pumpkin and secure it to the bottom with glue. Repeat as desired. Twist ribbon to add two curled tendrils at the top. Secure with hot-glue. (Wired or coiled ribbon will hold its shape best.)
This gourd gets its graphic appeal from Pictorial Webster’s—a volume filled with cool black-and-white illustrations. Choose your favorite drawings from the book (we used approximately 120 for a medium-size Funkin, or faux pumpkin), then photocopy them onto off-white cover stock paper. Next, carefully tear out each photo-copied image, leaving about half an inch of white space around it. (The rough edges will give your finished product added interest.) Using our découpage technique, cover an entire Funkin with the images, overlapping their edges as you work.
